The Apostolic Preaching of the Cross, a work that can now be placed among the modern classics of biblical scholarship, delves into the minds of the apostles when they used such words as "redeem," "covenant," "propitiate," "reconcile," and "justify" -- concepts that remain cental to the Christian faith today. Respected scholar Leon Morris studies these themes against the background of the relevant Old Testament passages, takes into account the light shed on the meanings of these words in the everyday language of New Testament times by recent manuscript discoveries, and compares apostolic terminology to that used in the writings of rabbinical Judaism. The result of Morris's careful background research is a lucid and rewarding study of the source of Christian theology -- the death of Christ and the interpretation of its significance by the early church. - Back cover.
